It was his sole hobby & passion. & with the space race unfolding in the 1960s, it was all he needed to capture his imagination. That was until a postal worker walked up his driveway with a package. Her energy seemed to unlock the universe for him & he was hooked. They began a friendship. He loved telling her about the various astronauts & their pursuit to reach the moon. He even took her along metal detecting & hunting for treasure. His solitude was vanquished & he was on a trajectory to the stars.
